If you drive your bike into a body of water at least you wont sink!

Re: Airbag for Motorcycles?!

I love this, I saw it on TV. But yeah, the force could certainly force you backwards, and being that you aren't in a seat that seems like a whole slew of back and neck problems.

It's funny that there are law makers who also want to put seat belts on motorcycles. Many of them do not ride bikes themselves. But there are many situations where I would rather be thrown from a bike than have it drag me underneath it.

Meh, the motorcycle airbag will give sense of security to some people. Often the people who can afford such an expensive bike, and simply don't know any better.
